Thursday, Jan. 10: Casey Rocheteau

OK, so you're not into the really olden Golden Girl every Tuesday night.  You're not really a gallery type, watching dance performances makes your pasty little limbs quiver and if you could have it your way, you'd unplug the phone and hole yourself up in a dingy, dimly-lit room, limiting

Friday, Jan. 11: "Kindergarten Cop" with Pamela Reed

In Kindergarten Cop, Hollywood's Lord of the Abs Ah-nold Schwarzenegger played a typical '80s movie super cop turned dedicated educator of precocious scamps - including a tumor-forewarning death-obsessive and a genitalia expert. Between the opening and closing credits, detective John Kimble saved a school and a family from a ponytailed

Healing Waters Fly Fishing. The way of the peaceful warrior

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. - For many of America's war-torn and disabled veterans, adjusting to life as a combat casualty can be the mental and physical journey of a thousand miles.

Saturday, Jan. 12: Palestinian Nonviolent Resistance

Even if you don't quite understand the complicated politics behind the bitter intractability of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, you'll have a visceral reaction to 5 Broken Cameras, a documentary that captures five years of protests via the amateur lenses of Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer whose hometown of Bil'in on the

Remember that sudden swing dancing craze about 10 years ago? I was living in Hollywood at the time, and my roommates were regulars at the Brown Derby, so I enjoyed a crash course in the lush life. That craze left town before I did, but its timeless,

Saturdays: Fools Play Improv

I improvised for 20 minutes on stage once, but that was because a prop got lost and our show was in freefall. Believe me, it's a lot more fun when actors plan to not plan. Of course, quality improv comedy is never entirely made up on the

Sundays-Tuesdays: Karaoke with Nikki Weatherhead

Remember back in the day when you were in your first apartment and spent a memorable Saturday night with your friends just blaring the record player and singing along to random selections from your album collection? Toss in a pitcher of PBR and extreme lighting and that is karaoke at Bob's

Dear Drink: Cointreau

  Dear Cointreau, OK, look. You're up to your neck in it, right Cointreau? Too much Mount Gay Rum, too much Remy Martin VOSP Cognac, too many trips through the effing blender with that no-good Milagro Tequila followed by dumps into a ridiculous salt-rim glass the size of a human head. You're

Taste testing Tacoma and Gig Harbor brews

Oh Father Winter, with you comes Jack Frost nipping at my nose. Fingers rigid and cold, hair wild from blustery winds, I curse you. And then I remember that with you also come winter ales and I take all the bad things I said about you back. You warm my

Tuesday, Jan. 15: Miss Massive Snowflake

When I first was made aware of the existence of a band called Miss Massive Snowflake, with song titles like "The Doctor, the Thief, and the Poet Versus Confetti," I was given pause. Happily, instead of the kind of treacly, sneeringly cutesy indie rock that I expected, I was met
